The link to Today's Flowers opens at 12.15 a.m. every Saturday, Eastern Time (US).  The old link will close the previous Thursday at 11.30 P.M.

To see beautiful blooms from around the world you can click here.


More photos taken at the Niagara Falls Botanical Garden (Canada).  I took a lot!  Once again I don't have the identity of all of them but identify when I can.

These were right outside the butterfly garden but I could not find an ID.  They look like a geranium of some kind but I am not sure.

Oriental Poppy - Papavar orientale - 'Curly Locks' - Papaveraceae

A Peony but what particular type I am not sure.

Purple Alliums


(The following message will be repeated every week.)

I wish to show my appreciation for all the participants in the previous week's Today's Flowers Meme, by sharing their links here.  I always try hard not to make any mistakes but please let me know if there are any, the same if I have missed anyone.  I do make the occasional mistake and I have already been made aware of one or two.  Believe me, I appreciate it as I like to get things correct.  The links are in the order they were received on the home page.  Consequently, this list won't be alphabetical.  Clicking on the names will take you to their blogs.

With my thanks to last week's participants who were:
